Hyderabad: BJP Telangana unit demanded an immediate meeting between Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and the RTC Joint Action Committee leaders to put an end to the ongoing agitation. The saffron party has extended solidarity to the agitating TSRTC staff. BJP questioned as to why the CM can’t listen to their demands and find a resolution at the earliest.
“The adamancy of the state government is not good for democracy. The attitude is fascist. Non-responsiveness to the RTC staff is undemocratic. KCR can’t consider the RTC employees’ strike as a personal insult or a revolt against him. Employees and labour unions have a right to protest, and they are exercising their legal rights to highlight their demands. It’s the responsibility of the management and the state government to address their requests and find a resolution,” said Krishna Saagar Rao, Chief Spokesperson of BJP Telangana State.
Further, the saffron party has urged KCR to immediately initiate direct interaction with the RTC JAC leaders and find an amicable resolution at the earliest. “People of Telangana are facing serious inconvenience during this festival due to the ongoing RTC strike. We blame the state government’s inaction for this fiasco. As the days pass, this strike can transform into a serious issue across the state. The RTC strike would impact day-to-day life and livelihood of the common people. The Chief Minister will be held responsible for all the hardships faced by the common people in days ahead in Telangana,” remarked Rao.
